|Bio and Links|
Live in Maryland; summer in the Adirondacks. Write historical articles for Weekly Adirondack in Old Forge and appear on www.adirondackalmanack.com , am interested in Adirondack and Fulton Chain historical figures, of whom many are in Oneida and Lewis Counties and other NY cemeteries, many now inactive, often in obscure locations.|
I work from my cemetery photos, then linking the graves through Ancestry.com trees, and newspaper sites such as www.nnyln.org and fultonhistory.com. I often contact ancestry trees to let them know I've found their family members, especially if I've used their trees to confirm or help link family members on findagrave.
There is always a chance for errors and happy finger typos. So please do not hesitate to let me know if you find something needing correcting, have more family connections or question the links I've made, using the "Edit" tab on the memorial.
If you find I've added a photo where one was already present, I often take photos to get the whole stone and a closeup for clarity or to get the family group of stones. If I find a photo of part of a stone and I have the entire stone , if the back of stone is shown without the front, I will add my own to the benefit of the memorial and the deceased's family who may not be able to go to that location.
In like manner, if someone has a better, clearer photo than mine, please add it and don't hesitate to ask me to remove mine. Please contact me and I will be glad to do so for this any other reason.
I don't add to existing photos to replicate what is there or to add to my statistics. If you believe mine repeats what you've added without additional benefit, please ask me to remove mine and I will do so promptly.
Rather than add memorials from listings, I add memorials from walking the cemetery and taking photos.
Anything I add to findagrave is intended to be used by you.

|KaminsGen||Bertha May Gaines Gleasman, Turin|
Just wanted to thank you for posting the obituary (with source) for Bertha May Gaines Gleasman (119169975). Very much appreciated!
Jay Kamins (wife is a relation to the Gaines line).
|C. Rose||Pitcher Cem|
Hi Charlie, when I set this cemetery up on findagrave, I checked with Lewis Co historical society as to name of cem. Someone added it as a different name. Why don't volunteers check names before doing this. I guess it needs to have a "also known as" put on each cemetery. Charlotte

Thank you for transferring the Snyder Family to me so I can update and manage. You have done a remarkable job maintaining the site.
|Carin Archer||Esther Ann Archer Hall|
Thank you for the clarification. Her obituary reads West Leyden cemetery. I have removed her memorial from West Leyden. Carin
|Jane Feldmann Cook||Holy Redeemer|
Hi, I don't remember if I have told you this before or not but I saw a recent note you sent to Michele Kraus about the Holy Redeemer cemetery records on the US genweb site. I just wanted to make sure that you understand that the database on genweb did not come from official cemetery records but came from my transcribing the gravestones. Much less official, including all of the typos before the days of spellcheck. Am still entering the same database on Find A Grave as fast as I can. Glad the genweb site was of use. Jane
|Kathy Manning||RE: lorraine haberer photo|
Loraine has the picture. 61062339
The book indicates her name is Kate Loraine and the date matches. I did send a note to Cindy requesting she remove the Kate L. entry.
|William Kazupski||RE: thanks|
You're most welcome!
I've made the edit. I can see why she was hard to find! GREAT FIND for you! :)
